All Painters Welcome!

Intermediate to Advanced

Vine charcoal or Pencils of different hardness (for oil painters I like PITT oil based pencils)
Small mat board cut into two “Ls” (makes a view finder)
Ruler or other straight edge
Drafting tape (low adhesive)
-1 or 2 sheets of 140 LB watercolor paper cold or hot (we will be folding and tearing into 6 smaller sheets for 
paint “studies” so you can do this prior if you wish)-if you will use this paper for paint sketches, please gesso or prime ahead of time.

-Palette (can be a paper palette, wood or glass)

Use what you have!
I suggest using a warm and cool of each primary, and then a very dark brown to mix blacks.

"In nature, light creates the color. In the picture, color creates the light." -Hans Hoffman


In these classes we will study the language of color and each pigment’s personality
to build a personal palette.  Enhance your color knowledge through exercises,
demos and by examining past and contemporary artists’ oeuvre.  Understand the
mysteries and properties of color from analysis of the psychology, perception and
energy for creating dynamic, expressive and meaningful paintings.  Each week we

ONLINE CLASS: Cut. Paste. Construct. The Figure with Nancy Gruskin (FULL!)

Cut. Paste. Construct. The Figure. with Nancy Gruskin

MEDIUM: Collage- 3D Paper and Cardboard Constructions

ALL LEVELS

ONLINE WITH LIVE MODEL THROUGH ZOOM VIDEO MEETING.
 

Working from a clothed model posing live on Zoom, we will make cut-paper and cut-cardboard
collages and paper and cardboard constructions of the figure. Prior to each meeting with the
model, the instructor will give a detailed list of supplies needed for that session (see the supply
list linked below for an overview). At the beginning of each live model session, the instructor will
briefly review the exercises for the day before turning the screen over to the model, who will
hold short and long poses, depending on the exercises for that day. Exercises will encourage
you to focus on gesture and shape and to experiment with materials and working methods.
There will be four sessions with the model and two sessions in which we discuss the work made
in previous weeks, go over new concepts, and examine slideshows of the work of modern and
contemporary artists. This class is intended as a springboard for your own artistic practice,
rather than as an introduction to anatomy or a specific method of working; however, beginners
are welcomed and encouraged! A computer, laptop, or large-screen tablet is advisable for
Zoom meetings, as adequately viewing the model on a smartphone screen poses a challenge.
An additional model fee of $25 will be paid to the instructor directly. All classes will be
recorded and students will have access to these recordings for the duration of the class
plus one week.

"The whole world, as we experience it visually, comes to us through the mystic realm of
color. Our entire being is nourished by it. This mystic quality of color should likewise find
expression in a work of art.
” - Hans Hoffman

In Alchemy II we will delve deeper into understanding color optics, and the properties
of saturation, hue and luminosity for creating expressive and meaningful color
choices.  Artists will augment their color knowledge through exercises, demos,
critiques and examining classic and contemporary art.  Students are required to take
Alchemy of Color, Part I before enrolling in this class.  All media.

ONLINE CLASS: The Unique Image with Kathy Deflice-Secor STARTS NEXT WEEK!

LEVEL: All Levels

Medium: Drawing and Painting with Acrylics on Paper

Explore your imagination and strengthen your mark making.  Push beyond what you know and tap into your intuitive nature.  Whether your work is abstract or representational, using your intuitive hand while responding to materials will bring out spontaneity and a different way to approach your work.  The surface you work on can influence the outcome.  Paper allows for a fresh and direct way of working.  Canvas and panel provide more support for richer application of materials.  This class will include working on a combination of surfaces to widen and enhance the variety of your work.
In this class, Kathy will assist you to thoughtfully explore your unique imagery.  During each session there will be exercises to flex your imagination and mark-making along with demonstrations and critiques.

WATERCOLOR: All Things Spring: From Sketch to Painting

ARTIST: MARJORIE GLICK

SIX WEEKS

April 28 - June 2, 2021

10AM-1PM ZOOM class

Celebrate the unfolding of spring by putting your watercolor impressions in a sketchbook. Because light is fleeting and flowers fade, students will supplement their sketch with reference photos. Often first impressions are a very pure and unfiltered experience of a subject and, if nothing else, it can spark joy of simply seeing and thinking about color. Working from your sketches and reference photos you take, learn to re-imagine these intuitive, observational studies into fully realized watercolors by using watercolor's unique qualities of transparency and flow and a study of color juxtapositions, layering, light and shadow.

Each week there will be a new assignment pertaining to an aspect of spring happening in real time, During the week, you'll make sketches and take reference photos. In class there will be watercolor demonstrations, time to paint, and we will discuss how to delvelop your sketches into finished watercolors.

Outdoor Plein Air Weekend Workshop at Grounding Stone Farm, New Hampshire

ALL MEDIUMS

Kathleen Jacobs

 

Working outdoors, students will investigate, record and hone their observational skills.  You will work intuitively to explore and consider line, form and the distinctive colors that exist in this beautiful part of the world.  Students will take simple hikes around the Grounding Stone Farm property.  Small sketches will help students to understand a simplified sense of space and compositional structure -- without over analysis of detail.  There will be an emphasis on drawing form and structure to seek a certain compositional grace and order from nature.  Working small, participants will draw and paint quickly. All skill levels welcome.  Any medium welcome; including oil, watercolor, acrylic or gouache, charcoal, etc.  Protocols to protect you and fellow students will be in place; students will be working outdoors.   All participants must wear masks and keep at a safe distance from each other.
